Attention Gucci-addicts, you must head on over to Saks (dot com) to take a peek at the latest styles for fall 09â€™. For the past couple of seasons, Iâ€™ve been on the fence regarding Gucciâ€™s collection; some stuff was so-so, while other goods were shockingly awkward. I must say Gucci has got me second looking some of their newbieâ€™s this time around, such as the Medium Icon Shoulder Bag. If youâ€™re in search of the perfect black handbag, this one might be it.
What makes this piece different from any other black handbag? The gorgeous ruthenium hardware found on this piece allows comfortable wear through your gold or silver toned jewelryâ€™s, so you can gladly put an end to the need to match your handbags hardware to your style. The roundish crescent like shape of the hobo is pleasant, especially with its feminine pleated details. Digging through your bag isnâ€™t necessary, as the wide zipper opening which folds all the way back, allows a considerable view of whatâ€™s in your bag, and both shoulder and across the body leather straps are conveniently found on this Gucci as well. I personally adore the style, and I can totally see myself carrying this piece from day to night.
If you prefer something bolder than black leather, Gucciâ€™s Icon Shoulder bagâ€™s can also be found in patent leathers, colorful shades of suede, or in timeless monogram fabrics.
